Contenus de l'unité d'enseignement

In this course, a student will carry out a personal project, which can be a stand-alone software or hardware or hybrid design and development, or a part of a larger, possibly interdisciplinary, project (e.g., Eco Marathon, the Robocup competition). We generally consider that it amounts to one month of full time work. If the project topic is proposed by the student, it must be approved by the coordinator, on the basis of a clear and detailed description and bill of requirements provided by the student. The work achieved by the student in this project cannot be credited to any other of his/her courses.

Acquis d'apprentissage (objectifs d'apprentissage) de l'unité d'enseignement

The project aims at developing the students' ability to carry out a realistic project from the conceptual to the operational phase. The students will improve their creativity, autonomy, communication and writing skills.

Modalités d'évaluation et critères

Travail à rendre - rapport

Explications complémentaires:

The evaluation will be based on the project completion report, the delivered system and its demonstration, and the project defence. There are no formal constraints on the size of the report, but it will typically be 25-page long. It should describe the context of the work, the problem addressed, the methodology, the accomplished tasks, the obtained results, and a conclusion (contributions and perspectives). It is necessary to provide enough quantitative information on the implemented system and the accomplished tests. The defence by the student is oral and public. It consists of an oral presentation, a question/answer session, and is followed by a short deliberation. The final grade takes account of the amount and quality of the achieved work, the quality of the written report and of the oral presentation, and the relevance of the provided answers.


Remarques organisationnelles et modifications principales apportées au cours

  • The final report must be submitted in January, June or August, with the same deadline as master theses.
  • The defences and demonstrations will be scheduled in January, June or September.
